The Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular tour has launched, celebrating the music of the world’s longest running science fiction TV series. The tour takes place this week in six cities across the UK and will be coming to New York with Michelle Gomez this October! 

Here’s some photos from the tour so far, click each one for a description. 


Madame Vastra

I fall over now. 

“ I can sculpt fast? I can sculpt a two part head prosthetic and full face in a week yeah? And mold each separately, and clean them and to a test/clean out cast (pull- because you literally pull them out…technical jargon right there) and the actual wearable piece.”

“And I can make a venue safe katana and sheath yeah?”

Oh and that is my authentically patterns and assembled c1890s hunting outfit :) One of my simpler but really clean works :)

And Maleficent bootcovers over Docs. So happy I went for them and not high heels. Let me get close to kids because oh boy did a lot of people like her :)

(Just a thank you to everyone who has reblogged this photoset!)


A lot of new and awesome pics were found here as well as on Twitter from the Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular. The first performance was on Saturday, the 23rd of May at the SSE Arena in Wembley. To the surprise of many, the Twelfth Doctor (Peter Capaldi) appeared at one of the performances.

Peter also had his photo taken with ComedyActors, London client Richard Dee Roberts. They’re working on new audio recordings for the Doctor Who series.

I’d really love to attend the DWSS, but the closest I would get is when it comes to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on the 7th of October. But even then that’s not looking like a possibility. For now, I’ve enjoyed what I’ve seen in bits and pieces online. I love the music immensely, so I know this is something to add to my Bucket List. ;)

Matt Smith introduces the Doctor Who Symphonic @ the Sydney Opera House

Oh, and there’s this one. She’s just signing stuff, as if she’s not ruining lives simply  by breathing, as if she didn’t basically walk back in to the Opera House with my heart, several other peoples hearts and a whole lot of fangirl feels trailing after her screaming out ‘LET US LOVE YOU’. Nope. She’s just signing stuff.

To whoever decided that Ben needs to tussle with the daleks in every performance, I want to convey my gratitude forever.

Except wow I think he actually hurt himself on accident in this one. Oh Ben.
